Sony Entertainment Television’s Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi actors, Shaheer Sheikh and Erica Fernandes have been in news for a while now – The actors were rumoured to be dating and Shaheer has once again denied the reports.

The recent reports even suggested that actors aren’t on talking terms but Shaheer and Erica later confirmed that the rumours are baseless and there is nothing wrong between the actors.

The folks at Hindustan Times got in touch with Shaheer (via Phone call/Email), and the actor commented, “Erica and I are good friends and there is nothing beyond it. I hope people give us a break. It’s really amazing how stories are being cooked up around us continuously. I guess few new online portals have come up and they write whatever comes to their mind. There is nobody to contest them. I think this is not right. They should be responsible towards the audience and the people they are writing about. At least, they should get their facts right.”

Shaheer continued, “There was always something concrete to write back then, unlike the random writing that is happening now, which has no connection to reality at all. I think it’s time that people stop giving importance to such rumours. I know such rumours help sell TV shows these days but I can’t really relate to such things — shows having interesting story-lines will always appeal to the audience.” Shaheer Sheilh would like to concentrate on his work. He is currently part of Sony TV’s Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi and he has recently signed a new Indonesian movie.
